MGM is bringing back The Addams Family for an upcoming sequel to 2019’s animated film, which is scheduled to be released on the road to this year’s Halloween. Today, a series of brand new character posters have been released, kicking off the summer in style.
Ghoulish style, of course. The gang is back, and they’re unhappy to see you…
In the new movie, “We find Morticia and Gomez distraught that their children are growing up, skipping family dinners, and totally consumed with “scream time.” To reclaim their bond they decide to cram Wednesday, Pugsley, Uncle Fester and the crew into their haunted camper and hit the road for one last miserable family vacation. Their adventure across America takes them out of their element and into hilarious run-ins with their iconic cousin, It, as well as many new kooky characters. What could possibly go wrong?”
The sequel to MGM’s 2019 box-office smash hit has rounded out its stellar voice cast with the additions of Bill Hader as all-new character “Cyrus,” and Javon “Wanna” Walton taking on the role of the youngest Addams sibling, “Pugsley.” Hader and Walton join returning Addams Family film stars Charlize Theron (Morticia), Oscar Isaac (Gomez), Chloë Grace Moretz (Wednesday), Nick Kroll (Fester), Bette Midler (Grandma) and Snoop Dogg (It).
Director Greg Tiernan has also returned for The Addams Family 2, which will be released in theaters October 1, 2021 via MGM’s United Artists Releasing banner.
